This too was inspired by `uniname(1)`, which hasn't been updated in years, so can't recognise many new unicode characters like emojis.

@ebel Thank you! I regularly have to check strings for hidden/invisible/tricksy characters and this should be able to retire the 30 adhoc slightly different scripts littered all over my filesystem that evolved to do something similar.

@ebel Now installed on debian.

Had to install rust first. Used this approarch thenewstack.io/install-rust-on with the rust script run under my own user.

But it looks like debian has native rust with an active community so maybe using stuff from there would have been a better approach...?

@ebel google led me to the page I referenced, for installing rust, to get cargo.

But I think I maybe could have done "apt install cargo" or "apt install rust" or something instead...?

@steinarb sorry yes, you need to do that curl rustup | sh thing, Then you can do `cargo install uniwhat`. I don't know if there's an easier debian way

@ebel very cool, bookmarked. i remember multiple occasions in the past years where this would have been super useful!
